This is Kara Waite. She’s a community college professor and instructional designer at a music school.
She’s also the aunt of three young girls. So when a friend told her that her 8-year-old daughter was being body-shamed at school, Waite was especially affected.
Waite has struggled with body image her whole life, she told BuzzFeed Life, and is currently working on a memoir about trying to love her body, called Weightless.
